Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! Today’s So In Love Blog Hop is filled with inspiring projects that share ideas for Valentine’s Day or new products we love. We are excited to share what we’ve made and hope you’ll find great inspiration from our talented team members in this hop. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Valentine’s Day is such a special time of year for so many. For me, I try to remember all the people in my life that I love. It is not necessary about “romantic” love. Though, the “romantic” feel of Valentine’s Day was my inspiration! I adore the “romantic” elegance of the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper. This paper makes me think of Age of Innocence or a wonderful Jane Austen book.
Every time I see this paper I fall head over heals back in love with it!!!!
So, now that I have my Jane Austen (or Age of Innocence) paper…I decided it was to beautiful to not make it the focus of the card. I cut out two pieces that were just so (the ribbon would not hide to much of the roses)
The card base is Very Vanilla card stock cut at 5 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. The panels are Basic Gray and Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper. I am completely in love with Basic Gray ever seance Stampin’ Up! introduced the Archival Basic Gray. It is such a beautiful color of gray. (this is coming for a Smokey Slate lover who never touched Basic Gray until the last few months)
The Stamp Set Friendly Wishes pairs so very well with Lots of Labels Framelits Dies.
This combination made it so very easy to bring everything together. The Bold Sentiment is perfectly paired with the soft roses featured in the Timeless Elegance Designer Series paper
Just to change things up a bit …. I added a two candy dots to one of the cards. This add a little extra focus to the bold sentiment.
Here is the supply list:
